My turtle acts like it is hungry constantly. I feed it about 10 times a day, but I know I\'m over doing it. He still acts hungry though after all that. Any tips on how many times I should feed him and what I should do. Usually when I feed him I drop two or three pellets and a pinch of shrimp. Thanks.

I don\'t know what the schedule is for a hatchling, but I feed my adult turt 3 times per week. Sometimes I olny feed her twice a week. That is fine. In the wild they can go for days without eating. She eats about 6 sticks and a freeze dried grasshopper when she does eat. She still begs for more, but she is not starving. If I put more than that in with her when I feed ger, it just floats around her. She also has plants floating in with her to nibble on.
